    Car underbody touching with speed bumps, springs issue?

    Hi All,

    Hope everyone is doing well.

    Ive been driving my car a lot more recently and I've notified that the underbody is touching when going over speed bumps, etc.

    The previous owner of my car deleted the SLS, so, Ive replaced the shocks with KONI sports all around a couple of months ago to refresh the suspension.

    However, now the underbody is touching when going over speed bumps.

    Could this be a spring issue? Is there any springs that I can buy which would help fix this as my car has been SLS deleted?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Matin

    Matin, you need to first determine what springs are in the car. Are they stock 500E, other factory Mercedes springs, or aftermarket? Can you post photos of the springs?

    Also, what is the ride height, front & rear, measured as shown in the attached pics?
